This was a “fun” job. Started with some old Home Depot oak cabinets. Added crown molding, light rail and a wine rack and trash roll out cabinet. Then we Sanded all the doors down really well and added 1/4” panels to finished ends where needed. Covered everything with tape and paper and then we went.. Finished with a nice espresso lacquer pigment. counter tops are still yet to be done but will post more soon.

thanks for viewing!!!

I have done something similar in the past, but didn’t need such a dramatic color change. What was your technique, and what products did you use?
The end result looks great.

i sanded all of the doors very well with 220 sandpaper and on the cabinet boxes i added 1/4 oak finished panels to the ends to have surface that will adhere to the paint better. I used a lacquer based stain with about a 5% pigment my local paint store made for me… as far as the doors go all i did was sand very welll SPRAY my stain coat and then but a top clear coat on so when its scratched it doesn’t go back to origonal color.

Have your say...
